Use Mobile Device Management
Make sure your business can isolate corporate apps from private apps. Mobile Device Management will give you control to onboard, enroll, manage, erase and upgrade the device centrally.
A mobile device management (MDM) solution can help enterprises tackle the security issues associated with mobile devices. MDM gives admins a way to track lost or stolen mobile devices using GPS, remotely wipe data if and when required, and more. ..
Most Mobile Device Management Systems offer many of the below advantages:
Containerization gives admins a way to isolate corporate data from personal apps. Isolating corporate data on employees’ mobile devices prevents any vulnerabilities in personal apps from risking the security of business data.
Email is a critical means of communication for most businesses, but it’s also a principal source of data leaks. Forcing employees to access coporate emails using a managed device helps keep corporate data safe.
Keeping devices up-to-date has always been a best practice. MDM facilitates the remote deployment of critical OS updates, keeping OS vulnerabilities patched and preventing any OS-targeted mobile malware attacks. Automatic OS updates, combined with proper scheduling and testing, helps enterprises avoid unneccessary breakdowns and improve employees’ overall productivity.
Device tracking and remote wiping
Not all users handle their devices safely; some employees may lose their devices or fall victim to theft. With MDM security procedures in place, admins can locate these lost devices and remotely wipe the corporate data on them, keeping the data safe.
Apart from the controls mentioned above, MDM also enables admins to detect compromised devices, block unwanted URLs, secure their organization’s network communication by deploying proxy configurations, and more.
